    Exactly. Elite NBA athletes bricking shots and going for crazy in-game dunks. it's a glorified shoot-around basically.

    So it's like half of a normal game up to that point.

    Love how Pop denied Paul George from taking the most points scored record.

    The NBA should have the D-league dunk champion and the white guy in the competition next year. Won't happen but it'd be far more entertaining.

    SG warmups seemed pretty cool… but the jacket fabric must be somewhat thick as it did not seem to fit/drape many of the players very well. Looks good in this photo though.

    probably something like tech fleece material, it also has an MA1-style pocket on the sleeve.

    Did you see that god-awful yellow leather Draymond was wearing at the slam dunk contest? My goodness.

    ^ lol… They were all pretty bad.

    @idfnl The first picture doesn't even show how terrible this jacket actually is (DG far right). It's not a rider, but has some angled front with a belt and what appears to be a "beaver tail" panel on the back. What a fucking waste of leather …. I actually prefer Drake's stupid "Farewell Mamba" coat… at least it had a purpose, albeit a short-lived one.


    Actually yes … should have just gone all-in on a cool GSW jacket for the ASG.

    Westbrook's 1960's sofa suit was unsurprisingly ugly… no more words for this.

    Um, ya he is. That's a yellow piece of shit.

    That motley crew look like outcasts from a down-low fashion show.

    This shit is kinda before my time, (well actually it is because I was a baby during this series) but I kind of hate how young people think that NBA players are so much more "athletic" (i.e. faster/jump higher/stronger/etc) than older generations.

    A little youtubing and I found this:



    [VIDEO][/VIDEO]




    Dr J fucking taking off from the free throw line in traffic finger roll?! A lot of lebron's game reminds me of Dr J (except Lebron barrels into people, and Dr. J smartly slipped by them).

    Bobby Jones (token white guy) doing some legit posterizing DUNKS.

    Darryl Dawkind (R.I.P.) dunking the shit out out of the ball often times in traffic.

    Cedric Maxwell attacking a fan?! and not getting thrown out?! (because well its Philly).

    The physicality of the game... OMG bodies fucking colliding and playoff fouls galore, but combined with the great flow of offense.
